Hello! I plan on buying my first airsoft gun this year. Buying a gun under $250 is my goal so that I can afford to buy extra gear. Of these three packages, which would be the best long term purchase? Thanks!

From what I know....

I have a JG G36C and after fiddling with it I broke the other barrel and hop up, and it's impossible to source parts. Apparently that's just a bad design flaw though.

I hear that the Combat Machine by G&G is an excellent starter/budget gun and gets recommended a lot from what I see.

No idea on the last one.

To be honest though, I would recommend saving up a bit more and buying a VFC or something high quality thatll just last forever.

This. I'd save up a bit more and get something better. That way, you'll get something reliable. If you dont end up liking the hobby or just dont like the gun and decide to sell it later on, you can recoup most of your money back.

Get the g&g. Classic army is niceish, but dollar for dollar, the g&g is your best bet.

If you are in tbay, maier hardware on simpson street may havr a g&g combat machine in stock.

The G&G is the best bang for your buck of those three. If your budget is $250 and that gets you playing now, then forget those who would tell you to save up and wait. Don't forget, you'll still need eye/face pro, battery(s), mags, places to put the mags etc. The G&G has a great track record and is easy to upgrade/fix/find parts if it should ever go down. It will make a great back-up/loaner should you ever decide to get something more expensive down the line.

G&G g36c if you are a fan of the mags. If you are not a fan of the mags grab the cm16. M4 mags are a dime a dozen, the g36 mags are bulky and require some getting used to.

Added benefit of the g36c is that it's a v3 gearbox which will last longer. It perform the same as an m4.

Would not recommend the sportline CA.

Absolutely agreed. I have a few Classic Army NON sportline guns, which are supposed to be better. However, ALL of them need immediately fixing (not upgrade) before they can shoot normally.

It seems their more recent released guns still have not improve much, very frustrating.

my suggestions in the order I would go for myself:
1. save a bit more and get a better gun (vfc, krytac) you can always buy gears down the road
2. become AV and check classified for guns in your budget area
3. check local yard sales (siege will have one next week)
4. go for g&g cm16 as a reliable starter gun
5. go for valken / lancer tac as shitty starter gun (expect them to fall apart sooner than later)
